About Ajay Mathur
Eclectic, grounded and always surprising - that's how the extraordinary trademark sound of Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Ajay Mathur can be described. A musical cosmopolitan and smooth shifter between the stylistic worlds, the Swiss by choice with Indian roots now presents with his fifth longplayer "Talking Loud" (2022) probably one of the most multifaceted albums of the year!
Ajay Mathur does not allow himself to be pressed into any stylistic pigeonholes. Instead of limiting himself to just one genre, the charismatic singer and musician fearlessly lives out his almost childlike joy of experimenting and exploring. A quality that earns him well-intended comparisons with legends like Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Tom Petty, Leonard Cohen or the Beatles.
Speaking of the Beatles. Ajay Mathur also has the Beatles to thank for his successful music career. Growing up in India, it was none other than the Liverpool fab four themselves who awakened the passion for music in the then 14-year-old - when Ajay met them in person in the fateful year of 1968. This is just one of the countless exciting artist anecdotes that Mathur has lived through during his career spanning more than four decades. The meeting with The Beatles was literally a life-changing encounter for Ajay, which eventually led to his former band Mainstreet after his relocation to Switzerland. In his new adopted country, he quickly found great success in the European music scene and recorded four albums with Mainstreet in the 1980s and `90s.
This artistic self-confidence and self-understanding has already been demonstrated by Ajay on his previous albums "A Matter Of Time" (2011), "Come See Conquer" (2013), the Grammy-nominated "9 to 3" (2015), as well as "Little Boat", released three and a half years ago, which was named "Germany's best English-language album of 2018" by the German Pop Foundation. All albums not only generated excellent reviews in international media, but also earned Ajay Mathur placements in the US Top 50 Rock charts, the US Top 80 Independent charts, the US Top 50 AC and Americana (AMA) airplay charts, as well as the European Indie Music charts (where he remained for no less than 128 uninterrupted weeks)
